I recently made a booking over the phone and was very disappointed by the poor customer service - Richard was far from the convivial and welcoming host one would expect from a higher range B&B. Furthermore, during the middle of our phone conversation, he answered another call from another customer which I thought considerably discourteous. I was left fuming and after some 24 hours of reflection, I decided I did not wish to depart with my £140 for a man who could barely summon up the interpersonal skills one would expect from someone in the hospitality trade. I've booked through many places recommended by Alistair Sawday but on this occasion, my experience on the phone left me unimpressed. They also charged me a £20 administration fee despite being within the 2 week cancellation period which also left me reeling.
